It was built in the 1870s; rebuilt inside “sometime after 1904”; and renovated in 2002. It served as the route 31 bridge across Locust Creek until 1991, when a modern bridge was built beside it and the covered bridge was restricted to pedestrian traffic. Construction is of the Warren double intersection truss sort (see photo below) – not a very common one, to my knowledge, although it is similar to other designs. The bridge, 113.75 feet long and 13.5 feet wide, is just over 6 miles south of Hillsboro (birthplace of author Pearl S. Buck) and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1981.

Covered bridge was a pleasure to see. Many wildflowers and babbling brook make this place very photogenic.

The road no longer goes through this covered bridge so that it can be preserved. Unfortunately, the day that we went, it was raining so we didn't spend a lot of time here. We were able to walk the length of the bridge. It was very nicely preserved but b/c of the rain we didn't want to walk around very... More
